Careers Engagement: a Good Practice Brief for Leaders of Schools and Colleges

This report highlights the principles of effective Careers Education Information and Guidance (CEIAG) as evidenced and agreed by the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL); the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL); the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER); and the 157 Group. The report also outlines how to audit and establish CEIAG priorities; how to put plans into practice using suggested methods and tools, and finally, how to review, evaluate and revise plans. The report highlights careers provision for students at secondary schools and colleges; however, the need to introduce careers education and careers activities at primary schools is recognised. The first section is entitled: “What are the principles of effective CEIAG?” The second section is entitled “How to become a careers-engaged organisation?” and includes an audit to establish priorities, how to implement CEIAG using methods and tools and support to review, evaluate and revise a plan.
